At least for the first 500 miles before you start getting a little heavy on the "GO" pedal. Good luck and enjoy! Should be a fun car for sure.
Be sure to post up photos when you get it.
There's the man to ask about breaking a car in ^^^^

Tony's had his for over 3 years and he's still in the break-in period.

Quick Question in regards of insurance premium:

I called Geico and got a quote because they requested for my VIN number. I gave them the VIN number and it knew it was a mustang GT what they dont know (or maybe they dont have to know?) is that the mustang is factory supercharged but the VIN number will show a GT regular V8. Should i tell my insurance company?

Some people will leave it as is so they can get cheaper premiums, but if you do not give that information to the insurance company it is very likely they will not cover the modifications. So if you are financing the car and it gets totalled you will only be reimbursed for the depreciated value of a GT which will likely mean you will owe money on a car that doesnt exist anymore.

To dovetail off what SplitSecond said, if it's a Mustang GT with a RoushCharger added at the dealer, that's different than a Roush offered car like Stage_3 has, because then (I think) Roush is the manufacturer and your insurance company would rate it as a "Roush Stage 3."

So you would want to insure the mods with a rider is your company does that.

Tony, am I close? Are you insuring a Ford Mustang or a Roush Stage 3?

I have my car insured with Grundy Insurance. Not sure how it works with his insurance, but I think my last insurer, Liberty Mutual, considered it a Mustang GT. (They would know the actual value of the car by the MSRP sticker price.)
I had to Grundy 3 photos of the car and I told them a few times, (via email to make sure I got it in writing), that the car is a 2013 Roush Stage 3.
Plus, I have a 47k value on the car with Grundy.

Just called Geico my insurance company and they told me that they do not insure mods and they will only insure the mustang if it's blue book value
